Love the price and weight, but I'd like to see what that 9hp feels like.
But for under $1k, it would be hard to go wrong with this.

I'm sure it feels weak. Someone on the ADV thread said it was enough to wheelie in first gear and he could loop it with some clutch. I think the point is to be able to go slow with a lot of control. A bike for practice  and building skills.
